We often tend to overlook using negative space as a design element. Empty space on a page is just as important as the filled spaces. Empty space forms shapes and pattern that impacts how your overall design looks. Also, lack of empty space can be disracting and take away from the main subject.

This challenge is to get you to focus on that negative space. I challenge you to design a page that is atleast 50% negative space! Donít be afraid to use embellishments though! Just make sure you keep them either small is size, or small in number!

Here is one of my fave "white space" layouts from my gallery:

Great challenge Amy...here's mine!
Dream
We could learn a lot from crayons...
Some are sharp, some are pretty. Some are dull while others are bright.
Some have weird names. But they all exist nicely in the same box.

This started as a LO for the July 1st challenge, but I didn't get all the elements in, and it feels finished.
